There was originally 4 until the two on the right joined to create the larger one. I think in the US you call these Dust Devils. Captured in January this year when severe storms were warned for the area and developed later in the day. Whilst it is common to see these out here in the Wheatbelt of Western Australia it was unusual to see so many at once and certainly fascinating to watch

It has the potential for being my 10th image, in the Top 10 of this amazing worldwide weather photography group! I never imagined being able to go 10 for 10 in the Top 10, in a single month. SO, I wanted to present this one image Pano of the main Beast that rolled out of the Amarillo, Texas area on the north side of I-40. This position of this tornado-warned supercell was near Alanreed, Texas on 4-16-15. If you like this image, or any of my others this month, please LIKE and SHARE this one to your weather friends so they can see that "everything's BIGger in Texas!! LOL THANK YOU for all the responses and participation on my weather images so far! My best regards to ALL of the people and their amazing images here too! Fingers crossed

Amazingly I actually caught two off of the same tower in southern Nebraska a couple of weeks ago. Nebraska was the first place that I had ever witnessed the spectacle years ago and ironically was the place of my first catch. For some reason that state really puts on some amazing displays very often. A good friend of mine and one of the best lightning photographers that I know or have ever met also that night had his first capture of the phenomena as well. Glad we were both together that night. Was a special moment that neither one of us will ever forget.

Looks like a tough choice to make. Of the two roads in the shot, one leads straight to the core and the other right up to the wall cloud. which way would YOU go?
